Melea is seriously the best hairstylist I have ever been to! I have thick long hair and getting the color and cut that I want is often times denied as an option because of the difficulty associated with it. I have gone to Melea three separate times for color, the first being in an attempt to achieve the grey/ash tones (I have previously asked many other stylists for this and have been told it would be impossible). Melea was stoked! She never once said "no, impossible!" But instead gave me the reality; we could definitely achieve the look, but it would take at least three sessions to get there. After just ONE session I was already pleased. Unfortunately, I changed my mind for personal reasons, and therefore did not go the full three sessions for the grey tones, but instead changed it up to a chocolate brown. I never go in to a hair salon without a picture for reference, except for this one time. She asked, "do you have a picture in mind?" And I said, "Nope! I trust you." because I do! It came out gorgeous, as expected.
And her assistant Alyssa is amazing as well. She's very knowledgeable about the products they are using on my hair, and very open to learning from Melea! She's going to be just as good of a stylist as Melea when she is no longer interning.
Thank you ladies for making me feel so welcome and beautiful each and every time I come in!
